Because when I saw this advertisement in my Email I about shit myself.
$5000 for a Plain Jane rebuilt engine.
$6500 for a high performance engine with an aluminum head and road racing cam.
I completely rebuilt the engine in that little fucker.
.020 over pistons cost me almost $400 alone.
I sent the head out and had it completely redone including exhaust valve guides, new valve springs and seals, valve grind, surfacing, the works.
Had the block done too.
New stock cam and bearings, new double row timing chain set and a $200 aftermarket aluminum billet rear crankshaft seal kit because the fuckers don’t have a rear main seal.
I was thinking $6500 was asking too much for the entire fucking car!
That includes all the damn parts I have collected plus all the new shit I have put on it.
I am going to have to see what the little fuckers are going for again. I might be way off base because they were still going pretty cheap all in all a couple of years ago but 5 grand for a fucking engine makes me think something may have changed.
